I was surprise at the quality on this 1911, the fit is something you would expect to find on a much higher priced gun. After cleaning the oil from the packaging it was shipped in I ran a few mags through it with no issues at all, I would recommend this to anyone!

A fine quality weapon. Arrived well oiled. After a good cleaning took it to the range. Have fired over 200 rounds through it, absolutely no problems. Everything runs smooth and well. It is accurate and a great shooting firearm. I am really impressed with this Rock Island. Don't let the price fool you, you can spend twice as much for a weapon that would just about be the equal of this one.

Fit and finish is really nice. Grips arent the best so I replaced with some Hogue grips. Fits well in the hand and handles the .45 pretty well.

I ordered on Sunday morning and it arrived Wednesday morning, great shipping experience, a Buds' hallmark! I had always wanted a G.I. 1911,even before carrying one in the Infantry(among other weapons.of course!) As for many of us, life gets in the way. Family always comes first and gladly so. Time flies and in the blink of an eye I'm not in my twenties but fifties and finances aren't quite as tight. I can't express how thrilled I was to get a R.I.A. G.I. 1911 from my family for my birthday! It's like seeing an old friend after decades have passed. This gun performs beyond my expectations despite all of the positive reviews I have read. I have been an avid shooter my whole life and I shoot and reload frequently. At the DNR range I frequent your only allowed 6 rounds max in the magazine. I started at 25 yards. I didn't see the first two shots. When I checked they were 9" high and 2" right from aiming center bull. I aimed 9" low for the next four and they made a group just under 1.25" 2 inches to the right from center bull! Then I went to 50 yards and it shot several 6 to 8 inch groups 4 or so inches to right of center! This was offhand with a two hand hold, snowing and blowing and 18 degrees outside! Very reminiscent of some of my qualification days in the Army. There were no malfunctions.The finish is blemish free.The trigger pull was a pleasant surprise as it is definitely on the lighter side with a barely discernible touch of creep. Absolutely nothing like the "8 lbs and gritty" or something along those lines I have read in some reviews. As good as this thing is right off the bat I can only imagine how good it will perform as I will be practicing with it A LOT! I have no reservations of having this be my carry gun. To sum it up I would wholly recommend this gun to anybody and not just to folks on a tight budget like me. God Bless and a happy upcoming Easter to all!

I was referred to Bud's by a colleague at work, and I have to say, I was pleased with the ease of use of the website, and the delivery was what I expected. My local FFL made it easy on this end as well. Even spotted me a box of shiny new rounds. I am proud to say I am now among the ranks of owning a classic model of firearm, and from the outset, I'm super excited for the opportunity to put 'er to use! Thank you, Bud's - I have no doubt I'll refer and use you again and again.

Great first timer. I put 200 rounds of winchester white ball ammo down range... It performed flawlessly! Its very accurate at 30 yards. And the price is great too. I'd like to personally thank buds for a smooth transaction/delivery. I cant wait to buy another.
